Grub id

I cleared off a garage roof of years of rotted down greenery.  I collected it all up because it looks like good compost, when tipping the bugs out i have come across a lot of these grubs.

    Put them in a compost heap or pile of rotting leaves - they'll help the earthworms to break it down.
